Just a quick update to the SALE...we can take credit cards!!! There will be a 3% extra charge on your balance if you use credit cards (so instead of getting 50% off, you will only get 47% off). Hope to see you here today!
We didn't win the "America's Best Baby Boutique" Contest but we were honored to be selected to be in the finals. Thank you to all of you who voted for us (some numerous times!!) The winner of the contest was a 30,000 sq ft store in California named Goore's - Congrats to them!!
We were contacted last night by The Cradle that we were selected from thousands of entries as one of America's Best Baby Boutiques. After we stopped screaming for joy and jumping up and down we realized what a big deal this is! We need your help...please, please click on the link below to vote for our store and you will be entered for a chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree. We wouldn't have POPIN with out you so thank you for all of your support!!!

When Jamie and I opened POPIN in 2004 we were not fully prepared for everything that we were going to experience. We feel very fortunate to have learned so many things along the way and especially meeting all of the wonderful people we have met. We have a POPIN family and if you are reading this then it probably includes you! We never dreamed that we would form some of the friendships we have just by owning a children's boutique. But, you have touched our lives and we feel connected with you. Each one of you who have encouraged Jamie through her very long, very difficult journey to motherhood...we can't express the words to thank you enough. She has had a month full of emotion, from heartbreak to hope. We aren't going to guess what God has planned but we are going to ask everyone to please keep praying. I know that there will be a happy ending, we just can't control the time frame. We'll let you know more details as we can. Thank you so much!!!
*We are going to skip the Sept. MITI but will continue in Oct...we had so much "stuff" going on this month, time just got away from us. Those of you who pre-pay your spots, your class fee will roll over to October. Thanks!
Make sure you check out this month's issue of Jacksonville Magazine and Jacksonville Home, we were lucky enough to be featured in both issues....they should hit the newsstands any day now (Jax mag has David Garrard on the cover and Jax Home is the Fall 2008 issue) Hope you guys have a great weekend!! ~Jamie & Wendy

Vegas was a whirlwind as always, we did lots of shopping, gambling, lounging and eating! Here are a few pics that we managed to get along the way. Our stay at the Wynn was beyond fabulous, we got to see Cher in concert at Caesars, and we found some new cute things at market...enjoy!
Love this shot, you wonder why more people don't write our names exactly as they are pronounced:
Fresh flowers replaced each day by our elevators at the Wynn:
After market we decided to lounge around at the hotel pool, it was like you stepped right into a movie, everything was so spectacular!! On the other side of this cabana bar is the "European" pool (NUDE) We stumbled on that one and almost died!!:Brian tagged along with us on this trip and we were able to show him around our favorite City, we all got dressed up to see Cher and LeReve, two great shows: Finally, proof that we actually did work during our trip....One of our fun new finds at market: Funky stroller umbrellas that attach to your existing stroller, you guys are going to LOVE the fun patterns we got them in: Every time you come into POPIN you hear the gorgeous voice of Susie Tallman, she is the talent behind the children CD's that we sell. We were so excited to order her new Christmas CD's and get a quick photo...she is so sweet!!: Serena & Lily has come out with a ton of great new products, a new organic bedding line, new adult bedding as well as some classically cool new accessories - just stop by the store to check out the new catalog!: While we were gone we received a ton of new stuff at the shop...I'll post some on that tomorrow, but if you can't wait, come on in and check it out for yourself!! ~Jamie
...where we head out to Las Vegas for Market!! This trip should be extra exciting because we are staying at Jamie's most favorite hotel in the world, The Wynn! We hope to find lots of fun stuff for the shop, we'll bring our cameras and show you guys what we found as soon as we return.
Have a great week and say "Hi" to our Mom when you come in POPIN, she'd love to see you!!
How fun, We have been tagged by our friends at The Vintage-Flea...we are always up for playing along, so here we go....
Here are the rules: 1. Link back to the person who tagged you 2. Mention the rules on your blog 3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours 4. Tag 5 bloggers by linking to them 5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers blogs letting them know they've been tagged.
Here's our list our unspectacular quirks (Wendy & Jamie combined just to make it a little more interesting): 1. We know every single line to the original Chevy Chase classic "Vacation" 2. We went to see "The Full Monty" together in the theater something like 21 times before it left, we followed the movie until it was only at one theater in Orange Park. 3. We never hold grudges with each other, if we get in a disagreement usually we can't even remember what it was about in twenty minutes or so. 4. Wendy & her husband went with Jamie & her husband on their honeymoon 5. Wendy had never had a Starbucks coffee until last year when Jamie got her hooked. 6. We both hate cleaning and filing which is not a good thing when you run a boutique together.
Happy Friday everyone!! I thought I would end the work week with some photos of some of the fun new things that we have been getting in at POPIN lately, hope you enjoy!!
